Am a recent Droid owner. Wish to download or move videos, pictures to my computer. I have it connected through a USB port already, but computer isn't reading my phone nor is there a Share option to copy or move files. How is that done?
Hmm, not sure what I did wrong- that didn't work for me. I took several pics at the Padres game and a video. The pics show up fine but the video doesn't transfer over (not even an option!).You have to mount your SD Card or the computer won't see the card as a disk drive. In the status bar you see an icon that indicates USB is conected. Drag the staus bar down and you'll see the option to mount the SD card. Froyo 2.2 changed the terminolgy to "Turn on USB Storage" which makes a lot more sense to a new user. But if you're on 2.1 then you have to learn the lingo. Bummer, huh.
Another soltution worth looking into for moving files from phone to PC and vice versa...DROPBOX. Look for it in the market. TRhe free version allows you to store 2GB. A paid version allows more data. I use the free version and have not exceeded the limits yet. Nice thing about DXropbox is, no USB cord. It moves files to a server so the PC and the Smartphone see the files. Cloud Computing at it's best.
Specifically, via your PC to ensure that's done with whatever it's doing with the card. You have the option to unmount from the Droid itself but the Droid has no idea what you're PC is or isn't doing with the SD card.It is always a good idea to unmount the card before disconnecting.
